Review: Samsung Focus S for AT&T
The Focus S has an 8-megapixel camera and the images I captured with it were all quite good. I saw accurate color, sharp focus, and crisp, clear results. There's little grain and some of the images really "popped" with detail. You have to manually choose the Macro setting for close-ups, as the Focus S doesn't focus on close subject without it. Other than that, the Focus S has a really good fire-and-forget camera that you don't need to adjust much to get good pix.
The Focus S captures video in either VGA or 720p HD resolution. The VGA setting was stunning. I've never seen such good-looking VGA video in my life. The 720p HD video was quite excellent. It didn't have any of the over-sharp and jitter problems I saw on the Focus Flash. Instead, video was accurately exposed, in focus, and colors looked rich and warm.
